Can i show the label names in the Trello iOS app, like the desktop app.

In the web app you can show label names on the front of the cards by pressing ";". Is it possible to show the label names in the iOS app too?

This is an absolute must in my opinion

Not at the moment, but I'll share your interest in this with my team! 

If you're curious about how our team decides on what requests we work on, this article gives some insight into that process:

To see what features our devs are currently working on, check out our dev board at Our mobile boards are available at and, and serve the same purpose for our mobile apps.



Me and my team would very much appreciate this option! Please allow it since working with names of the labels and not only with colors is quite important.  Thanks!

+1. This would be a great feature.  

+1 this would be a great feature

+1 for this feature.

+1 from me. It would be a great addition.

+1 Our team really needs this feature, please update if this can be implemented. 

@Marta - This is not a feature request! The iPhone app should work like the webapp does for labels or it is useless to even use custom labels. The best response to this would be something like this: "Yes, it is not working right, we will get that fixed right away!"

+1 for me too. Hard to remember all the colour choices I made for my labels, worse when the board is shared

+9000 for me too

+1 for us and +3000 for the portion of our clients that use iOS.
Some of them use iOS almost exclusively.
We advise users on best tools for team and personal workflow, and this is a valuable add for them

Without this, the mobile version is hard to digest visually.

An absolute deal breaker for my team at the moment. Seeing just the colors in the iOS app is just not enough. : ((

I agree with the above, would really love to have readable labels, else there is little point in using them (apart from very general stuff like the green, orange, red for traffic-light states).

This is an abosolute must, for Android too. Tags are useless on mobile otherwise.

I definitely need this as I use the same colors for several different labels, so just seeing the colors wouldn't be enough even if everyone memorized the color schemes.

Yes, Please add the text to the labels for mobile! I have all of my project names as labels on the cards, so I'm kind of lost in that way when I access on mobile. I also have all of my job name labels in the same black background, so they are not color coded. I tried color coding, but much prefer a single color--otherwise it's color-information overload, and I lose track of the due date colors, which is critical for me.
